Cynthia Sears tells us about Rachel Feferman’s life and how it influenced her art, especially the “Golden Hands” in this exhibit, which is titled “Hole in the Heart.”  Greg Robinson describes this very moving exhibit, unusual for the art museum because it is the first exhibit of an artist who is no longer living.

The current show will continue until February 15, 2015 at the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art, which is located at the corner of Highway 305 and Winslow Way.
